Does crosswalk lite work well with Ionic 2?

Has anybody use crosswalk lite with ionic 2 in a production level app? What features are there in crosswalk there are not in crosswalk lite? (Why doesnt everybody just use the lite version)

I have ended up installing crosswalk purely to use the ‘date’, and ‘maptoiterable’ pipes, pipes are not supported in android kitkat or below.
Is there any way to use date* and maptoiterable functionality without using pipes and therefore avoiding crosswalk (which makes my app size far too big)?


*I know you can avoid the date pipe using this
